Sgt. 1st Class Gregory McQueen, a Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention officer, is accused of setting up a prostitution ring at Fort Hood’s III Corps headquarters and recruiting young, cash-strapped female privates to have sex with older soldiers.
In a case that has focused national attention on the issue of military sexual assault, McQueen, among others, has been charged with 21 counts of abusive sexual contact, pandering, conspiracy and adultery. According to investigative documents, the alleged ring was revealed when a young private told authorities McQueen tried to recruit her and then sexually assaulted her during what she termed an “interview.”
A pre-trial evidentiary hearing is scheduled to begin March 20, which will determine whether McQueen faces a court-martial on the charges.
